ADAMS. CELIA 

Business Machines 

"Scottie" likes tall marines, bus

ing personality and ready smile.

ALLEN, JOANNE ANTOINETTE 

Business Machines 

Whenever you hear an uproar in 
115, you can be sure "Joanie's" 
around. Her quick sense of humor 
and wonderful personality are what 
make her one of our best-liked se- 
niors. Making Es laugh, Vaughn

ANDERSON, EDITH 

Business Machines 

"Edie" is the quiet member of our 
class. Her ambition is to go to Florida

dancing school. Although she likes 
everyone, those persons who are for- 
ever tardy and who are poor sports 
annoy her. 



ANGELO, WENDELL 

Technical 

"You're a gook!" says "Wendy" 
after he slugs you for flinching. This 
pool shark can't stand die Aufgabe, 
work, or the "New Look", but watch 
his smoke where sports, sleeping, eat- 
ing, and women are concerned. He 
plans to go to Northeastern and keep 
up with his hobbies of collecting 
stamps and foreign (also U.S.) money.

likes conceited girls and too much 
homework.

physics class, very aptly has planned 
M. I. T. as his destination and civil

dislikes most of all his slave duties in 
the caf — namely, buying T.Z.'s milk

Dave, our dashing, handsome presi- 
dent, plans to take up civil engineer- 
ing at Northeastern University and

When you hear someone in 115 
snapping her gum, you can be sure 
it's "Tina". Her ambition is to become

likes to dance, bowl, and friendly peo- 
ple. Conceited people are of no use 
to her, while her sunny disposition is 
her best virtue. 



BENT, JOHN E. 

Practical Arts 

"Johnny", better known as the 
"woman hater" of W.H.S., claims that 
the thought of manual labor knocks 
him for a loop. He is not quite sure 
of his destination, but the rugged fel- 
low adds that he'll try to do some- 
thing that takes the least possible 
mental or physical effort. Playing 
cards with Al, Bob, Doc, and Chuck 
is one of his many vices. Food, sleep, 
and sports take up all his time. Bas-

our "Pat", who gets along well with 
everyone. She's mad about Tech Tour- 
neys, field hockey, Shakespeare's 
plays and chemistry classes. Her 
secret ambition is to work for the U. S.

ple and also slow pokes. After grad- 
uation she plans to become a tele- 
phone operator. Her hobbies are read- 
ing and sleeping. 



BOWDEN, JANICE AUDREY 

College 

"Jan's" witty remarks and happy 
disposition have won her many friends.

BROWN. ELIZABETH 

Stenographic 

"Betty" is one of our 109 girls who 
glares at the very mention of a type- 
writer. We wish we could give her 
the whole 24 hours in a day just to 
sleep because she'd like it that way, 
but wouldn't we all? 



BROWN, FRANCES 

Practical Arts 

"Frannie" is a member of the big 
4 of 212 and can usually be found at 
the skating club. Swimming, tennis, 
and the drums are also high on her 
hit parade. She dislikes conceited 
people and getting up early. She 
plans to travel to Texas with "Honey". 




BRUNEAU, M. LORRAINE 

College 

Lorraine possesses one of those rare 
combinations of personality, superb 
athletic ability, and an All-A record 
(and a Harvard man). Talk, dancing 
with Patty on Friday nights and music 
are her major interests. She will at- 
tend Simmons next September. 
Honor Roll II, III, IV 
All Sports II, III, IV 



BRUNEAU, Z. ALSACE 

College 

We can understand "Al's" abhor- 
rence for bad music when we consider 
the fact that he's going to the New 
England Conservatory. If you can't 
find him fooling around with guns or 
playing the piano, you will probably 
find him at the tennis court taking 
vicious swings at a defenseless tennis 
ball. 



BRUCKMAN, JOHN F. 

College 

John has become known to his class- 
mates for his cheerful smile. He en- 
joys photography, swimming, and other 
water sports. He has distinguished 
himself scholastically here and hopes

or the U. S. Maritime School.

but dislikes getting up early and wait- 
ing for second bell at lunch time. Her 
hobby is going to the auto races with 
Bob. 
Drum Majorette II, III, IV 



BURNS, JUNE E. 

Stenographic 

Sincere, friendly, genial "Junie" 
hopes to travel through Europe and 
the Orient. Collecting classical rec- 
ords, dancing, swimming, and reading 
are tops with her, but domineering 
people are "out". Favorite subject is 
English, and going out with the TM 
suits her fine. 
Honor Roll II, III, IV 
Mirror Staff IV 
Dramatic Club II, IV 




CAMPBELL, DOREEN 

Business Machines 

If you hear footsteps ten minutes 
after the third bell, you can bet your 
boots the school bus has arrived, 
bringing "Doreen" safely to school. 
California is her destination, and her 
weaknesses are men, convertibles, 
and eating. She definitely dislikes 
getting up early and people who are 
never on time. Complaining again, 
"Meatsie"?

CACACE, PASQUALE L. 

Practical Arts Course 

If you hear someone calling "Don', 
"Two Gun", or "One-way", you know 
that "Patsy", the handsome caballero 
of W. H. S., is around. He hopes to 
no to college, and coach a New Eng- 
land high school football team. Sports

noisy music. Dramatic Club II, IV —

chief dislike is Humphrey Bogart.

That little bombshell is none other 
than "El". Her pleasing personality 
and that certain someone keep this

diolike is boys that think they are 
smart, but sports and long walks rate 
high with her. To be an ace reporter 
is her ambition. 



CARTER, RICHARD M. 

Technical 

Tall, good-looking, "Dick", our fa- 
mous chemical engineer of the future, 
can be seen throughout the hallowed 
halls of Waltham High wildly scream- 
ing, "Put me down!" or "NOT the 
Aufgabe!" This very amiable fellow 
likes tolerant teachers, tennis, basket- 
ball, strumming his old gee-tar and 
like every other 100% red-blooded 
American boy — women. Honor Roll III,

make her a success in any field she 
may enter.

CIMINO, JOHN BERNARD 

Business Machines 

A wise crack, corny or otherwise, 
always denotes the presence of 
"Bernie", and more often than not 
he is close behind Red. He wants to

spare moments now. Like just about 
everyone in 112 he likes women and 
dislikes homework. 



CINCOTTA, KENNETH

112, plans to be soaring over W.H.S.

Qlali PlOfLkecdf, 



Nobody can work in Manhattan in mid-June. At least 
that's how I justified my resolution to take a day off. 
So I covered my typewriter, closed the skylight, and left 
my studio for a day uptown. Ever since I'd come down 
to the Village, I had been working steadily with breaks 
just often enough to admire the paintings of Beverly 
Kenneson across the hall, buy more paper from Daniel 

'Leary, or get some cheese and crackers at Christine 
Kizzo 's delicatessen. Now I needed a free day and was 
determined to take it. 

Heading uptown I crossed Washington Square Park 
where Barbara Perkins was walking the president's dog. 
High in a tree roosted Eichard Barnicle practicing his 
famous bird imitations. Over at the foot of Fifth Avenue 

1 dropped into Josephine Falzone's grille, sipped a drink, 
and talked with waitress Dorothy Cheney while Louis 
Wool beat out The Curse of an Aching Heart on a bat- 
tered upright piano. As I was leaving, Charles Levey 
came over and said, ' ' Let 's shoot a game of pool. ' ' 

' ' No, thanks, ' ' I said, ' ' go find another fish, ' ' and 
started up the Avenue. 

Being a poor, struggling author I couldn't patronize 
the fabulous stores along the world's most fashionable 
shopping street, but I did notice some of them. The key 
store of shoe-magnate Robert Millar's chain was there, 
and a gift shoppe owned by Janice Bowden. Model 
Beatrice Demeo was just coming out of Chez Nous, a shop 
run by Irene Doucette and Marie Richards, who deal, 
they informed me, not in dresses, but in "exquisite, dis- 
tinctive creations" direct from Paris. Well, they were 
pretty dresses. 

It was eleven-thirty, so I decided to eat lunch and 
beat the rush. My old favorite, the automat, was already 
crowded so I went into a cafeteria. There Catherine 
Hayes and Virginia Keefe served me, and cashier Norma 
Tibbetts greeted me ' ' back to civilization ' ' as she termed 
it. I finally spied an empty seat and rushed to it. Al- 
ready at the table was big Tom McDonald laughing like 
a man possessed. 

' ' Pardon me, sir, but could I . . . " 
' ' Ha, ha ! Oh, sure, Dwight, sit down. I was laughing 
so hard I didn 't see you. ' ' 

I simply couldn't resist asking, "What's the big 
joke?" 

' ' Just saw Robert Coyle. And you know what he 
went and did? Joined the army. Ha, ha! " 

He put on his coat and was still laughing when he 
got out to the street. Well, it 's still a free country. I 
finished just as accountants Al Scafidi and Ronald Martin 
came in with stenographers Jean Zwicker and Beverly 
Manter. 

The sun shone hot directly overhead. I bought a car- 
nation from a little old lady (fooled you, nobody I 
knew), stuck it in my lapel and continued up the Avenue. 
At Bryant Park I stopped to listen to a political rally 
for Al Paladino whose opponent for office was William 
Wiggin. 

As I turned away, a sleek red convertible pulled up, 
and June Burns leaned over and said, "Hop in, Dwight. 
I 'm just going up to a party in Westchester. Beverly 




HEATH, DWIGHT B. 

Roberts is throwing a shindig for the big names of the 
sports world, and I 'm to give it a big write-up in my 
social column. ' ' 

When we pulled in at the big suburban home, the 
lawn par*w was already in progress. Our hostess did not 
bother to introduce us because we already knew every- 
body there. Those outstanding in the world of sports 
included golfer Waldemar Tilly, swimmers Althea Notar- 
giacomo and Harold Williams, and mountain climber 
Blliette Racine. Fighters Roy Mogan and Ted Ericson 
were there with Fred Kokidko, Chester Muise, and Robert 
Cowie And of course, Margaret Koundakjian with her 
all-girl ball club with John Bent as mascot. 

As soon as June had jotted down everyone's name 
on her huge note pad, we left without so much as a fare- 
well. "Well," I said "that was easy. But how are you 
going to write about it tomorrow ? ' ' 

' ' Oh, that 's the least of my worries, just mention a 
lot of names and you're all set. The boys on the copy- 
desk don 't know what it 's all about, and the people there 
don 't care. Just mention a lot of names, and nobody 
bothers with anything else, ' ' she explained. 

She dropped me at Rockefeller Center, and I thought 
about how I had had to do the same thing in high school. 
Wiry hadn 't I become a society reporter instead of an 
author ? 

Well, anyway, I was going to see what was going on 
in Radio City after my long absence. Strolling down 
the Promenade, I met Jean Gardiner. Imagine my talking 
to the girl who put June Allyson out of the movies! But 
the thrill was short-lived — she had to do a guest appear- 
ance on George Garrahan 's comedy program. 

In the City I bought a ticket from Marjorie Packard 
and headed for the observation roof. In the elevator, 
operated by Sally Peirce, were also lawyers Grace Colligan 
and Charles Lombardo. . The car raced up and I stepped 
out on th^ roof. Sightseers already there included Howard 
Bruya, Head-Captain in the Marines, and Sergeant Al 
Peaslee with nurses Barbara Ross and Helen Muise, all 
on furlough. 

Over in one corner stood Barbara Rollins and Dorothy 
Mastrantuno. ' ' What are you two looking so smug 
about?" I asked. 

' ' Well, you know, we have become nuclear physicists, ' ' 
they replied; "we just like to come up here and sort of 
laugh at people and what they are doing. ' ' 

The way they said it and their funny ironic half -grin 
made me go inside and rush down to the street again — 
fast. 

I brushed past model Pauline Dickson, who had just 
come from Mary Ellis 's beauty salon, and jumped into 
a taxi cab. The hackie, George Wollrath, sang gayly to 
himself as we careened down Broadway. When he had 
to stop for a light at Forty -first Street, I passed him a 
dollar bill and climbed out. As I stood on the curb trying 
to regain my breath, a figure strode by me and hopped 
into the cab. Ellen Kokidko directed George to the 
Russian Embassy, opened her briefcase, and was gone in 
a roar and a cloud of smoke. 

Dashing out of the Times Building, Josephine Falzone 



greeted me briefly with, "Hello, Heath. Gotta run — 
gotta big assignment. Gotta meet the Queen Mary and 
get some interviews. Big operators — you know. See you 
around. ' ' 

' ' Ain 't that just like Jo ? " said Alan Harris, who 
the chair back. I stared right back at them for a moment, 
things the hard way. He doesn't know that my paper 
planted Mary Juliano on the boat over in London, and 
she has been cabling interview material all the way across. 
We 've had her cover Ruth Gardiner, the missionary who 's 
coming back for her sabbatical year, singer Barbara Var- 
ney, and those women doctors Ruth Uberti and Betty 
Jones. They 're at press now. ' ' 

Newspaper work surely is a shrewd business, I agreed 
— even Marjorie Clark 's column of advice to the love- 
lorn. If it sells, print it. 

Over at the Metropolitan Opera House I saw that 
Carol Wroe was singing the feminine lead in Tristram 
and Isolde. I understood Shirley Fleming, her agent, had 
her booked for a two-months' concert tour after the 
opera season. How that girl does it I don't know. 

Around the corner I ducked into a joke shop for a 
trick deck of cards, but by the time manager Priseilla 
Wilder finished with me, my sales resistance being what 
it is, I came out with a silver derby, an automatic water 
pistol, and a big red button with the legend 23 SMdoo. 
So you can imagine my chagrin when, in that attire, I 
met Vera Allen with her troop of Girl Scouts. I red- 
dened, murmured a faint "Good day," and broke into a 
run. 

Panting and hot, I dashed into Geraldine Iannuzzo's 
soda fountain. From the booth behind I heard, "But 
H20 gauge would never do, man. Don 't yourfealize ..." 

' ' Shhhh, strangers may be listening. ' ' Langdon God- 
dard and Robert Hook poked their heads cautiously over 
was leaning against a nearby lamp post. ' ' Always doing 
but, not wanting to disrupt the progress of the Mystic 



Knights of the Something-or-other, I got up and walked 
out as nonchalantly as I know how. 

Over at John Keough's canteen I got an altogether 
different reception. "Just the man I want to see," 
shouted Peter Le Port as he rushed over to greet me and 
dragged me back to his table. "Here," he said, "show 
these/men how wrong they are. ' ' 

Engineers John Meade and Dean Ringrose looked at 
me anxiously. ' ' Yes, ' ' said Jack, ' ' maybe you can 
straighten Pete out here. ' ' 

One look at the scribbling on the tablecloth, and I 
knew they had picked the wrong man. They had drawn 
a scale diagram of the George Washington Bridge and 
wanted to determine the potential stress on the twenty- 
seventh cable on the left from the New Jersey side. 
' ' But, fellows, you know I don 't know beans about math 
or science. I'm just an ignorant writer, and you try 
to . . . ." 

' ' Listen, ' ' said Pete, ' ' these guys have been trying 
to tell me that DX number 247 couldn't take it.. Now 
any fool can see that it 's only ..." 

' ' Wait a minute, ' ' protested Dean, ' ' your DX 247 is 
314397 per foot. This needs fully . . ,' ' 

The phone rang. "Pardon me, boys, my brother 
Ernest wants me. Have fun, ' ' and I slipped out the 
back way. 

At Pearl Pinstein 's drug store I had an aspirin. Lois 
Milligan and Edna Wencis came in and exclaimed, 
' ' We 've been looking high and low for you. We have 
just finished a book about our travels and would like to 
have you pass judgment on it. ' ' 

I was elated. I treated them to banana splits (with 
me that's high finance) and thanked them profusely for 
the honor. 

I went home, opened the skylight, uncovered my type- 
writer, and dozed off while reflecting on the day.

Qlall Jlutosuf, 




Our ship reaches port in the morning. I'm busy in 
my cabin now preparing to disembark. My clothes are 
all packed; I'm just tucking away a few souvenirs. Ac- 
tually it 's been a long voyage — three whole years. And 
,yet I remember the day we set out as though it were 
yesterday. One-third of the passengers had departed in 
June of '45, and so, spying the void, and with the 
encouragement of the ninth grade teachers who saw us 
off at the pier, assuring us that "travel broadens one", 
we clambered aboard, half-anticipating, half -afraid, half- 
witted. We were sophomores! 

That year flew by. It was about all we could do to 
get acquainted with the captain, the crew, and to find 
our way around the good ship, Waltham High. Sensing 
that we were not too bright, the crew began the tedious 
process of cramming us with knowledge. 

We were an insignificant little band, but we went on, 
driven by the thought that some day we too would be 
seniors. In our earnest attempts to attain that goal, we 
aped the ways of these superior people. They had class 
officers headed by Dick Stumpf. We chose class officers 
too, all men, top man Bob Damoiseau, Buddy Williams, 
Billy Driscoll, and Denis Comeau The seniors had a 
dance ; we had a dance. Those who attended the Sopho- 
more Social had a lovely evening. Well, at least they 
had plenty of room to dance. We went on, bowing low 
to upper-classmen and learning our lessons well. 

Ah, here are some things worthy of my memory box. 
This is a 1946 year-book — the first with hard covers, 
and within it is the shining record of our hockey season 
for that year with its galaxy of outstanding players. 

I have my ticket stubs still from those fine Dramatic 
Club plays. There Guppy Bruya starred in ' ' The Pam- 
pered Darling ' ', the first on his impressive list of stellar 
acting roles. The Dramatic Club also kept busy, as I re- 
call, planning two fairly successful dances. 

My only other sophomore souvenir is a 1946 Class Day 
program. We were juniors at last. 

Our First Mate, Mr. Ward, retired after serving his 
ship well for many years. The First Mate, Mr Huff, 
who succeeded him, is known best by his cheery little 
attendance talks. 

There was a changeover of officers and another ' ' dance- 
of -the-year ' '. Our newly elected representatives were 
President Dave Bell, Vice-President Ellen Mitchell, Secre- 
tary Doris Dunbrack, and our Auditor was that fragile 
fellow, Paul O'Brien. Here are my pressed roses from 
the big dance, which was in this case, of course, the 
Junior Promenade, under the able chairmanship of Ronald 
Goudey. Although much more successful financially and 
socially than the sophomore event, there was the usual 
early exodus as a good part of the student body beat a 
trail to Ten Acres, the Meadows, and points below. 

This Tech Tourney score-sheet that I saved from last 
year will attest to a sparkling basketball season, with 
our boys stopped in the Tourney finals only by a mag- 
nificent Durfee High squad. 

Finally the Class of '47 left in a blaze of glory with 
caps, gowns, and a very impressive outdoor graduation. 
Our exalted position was attained. All 287 of us were 
seniors. 



GREENE. MIRIAM PEARL 

Like so many seniors before us, we were a busy, happy, 
noisy lot. One could witness this from deck four all the 

way down to steerage. But what's this? a hush has 

fallen over deck one where Admiral McDevitt's quarters 
are. Ah yes, it's the monitor system. In the middle of 
ship 's corridors they stood like stone statues with hearts 
to match, but they kept us quiet in spite of ourselves, 
and with careful detours onto some upper deck whenever 
possible, we survived. 

As usual, the dance was held in the main ballroom. 
Strange how when one waltzed about the highly polished 
dance floor, one had the ungraceful feeling of being in 
one 's gym clothes. And here 's the little green and white 
dance program. It tells us that credit for this extremely 
successful affair needs go to its chairman, Paul Foley, 
who shares his bouquet with all his hard-working assis- 
tants. 

The dance program also lists our class officers. Inci- 
dentally, the top two were one of the most cooperative 
teams here to years! I mean, of course, Dave Bell and 
Barbara Perkins. The secretary and auditor were Sally 
Stevens and Al Scafidi, respectively. 

Many things were ' ' new ' ' in this last year of our 
voyage. ... As a feeble protest to the ' ' New Look ' ', 
our male members were seriously considering taking up 
a collection for all girls forced to wear grandma's cast- 
offs .... There were many new crew members to 
teach us our algebra, English, geology, and what have 
you. . . . Young voices raised in song resounded through 
the ship 's corridors, but it wasn 't the familiar, ' ' Give a 
Cheer for Waltham High". It was something new! It 
was a most interesting composition in civilization better 
known as "Bongo, Bongo, Bongo". 

Lively little Eita Caia, the captain of the cheerleaders, 
led her all-girl group in the snappiest cheers and routines 
that Waltham 's seen in many a day. They spurred on a 
football team that made startling victories over Everett 
and Newton, and a basketball team that lost to Durfee 
Hi^li again in the Tech Tourney, this time by a hair's 
breadth. Our boys played a truly history-making game, 
of which we are duly proud. There were stars in every 
sport — football, baseball hockey and basketball. All in 
their respective fields, some of our super senior sportsmen 
were ' ' Patsy ' ' Cacace . ' ' Tony ' ' Bahros, ' ' Red ' ' Cormier, 
"Charlie" Metz, "Al" Peaslee, "Dave" Bell, John 
Bent, and "Al" Scafidi. 

We climbed into our ' ' woolies ' ' early in the season. 
It certainly was a wearing winter, brightened, however, 
by the playful antics of George Russo and Morrill Wilson. 
.... Mr Mosher, as class advisor, became a first-rate 
Mr. Anthony, with a word of wisdom for all those who 

sought the benefit of his counsel A select group 

of girls witnessed frequent teachers' meetings at Giar- 
dina 's Ice Cream Parlor. And so the winter passed. 

Then April came and time for the Senior Play. Here 
are the News-Tribune clippings. The play, "A Date 
with Judy", under the direr^™ r>f Mr. "Smiling" Ralph 
Nelson, came off without an apparent hitch. That was 
due, no doubt, to the conscientious chairmanship of glam- 
orous Joan Rourke and vivacious Rita LeBlanc. It was 
a story of the well-known, well-loved Foster family, aptly 



played by Marjorie Clark, Courtney Gillis, Howard Bruya, 
Barbara FitzGerald as Judy herself, and William Curran 
as Oogie, her beau. 

Bight now the year is just about all over Miss 

Hart shed bitter tears as her IV B boys walked from 

Room 114 for the last time Al Peaslee and Buddy 

Williams won't be wearing dungarees till Friday. .... 
We also learn that the Waltham High will have a new 
captain next year since, after honorable service aboard 
ship since 1904, our beloved Captain Goodrich is leaving 
with us. 

There 's another souvenir that I '11 gather today — a 
magazine. I believe they call it the Mirror, for which, 
at the paltry price of four dollars, one may purchase the 
blood, sweat and tears of its editors, my favorite woman 
and a brilliant lad named Dwight Braley Heath. 

Tomorrow will officially mark the end of the ninety- 
ninth voyage of the Waltham High, the end of our 
foundation for living, also the end of our voyage as a 
whole — the Class of 1948. 



From here on in, each one of us is alone, ready now 
to accept life and the responsibilities that will surely 
come, and there is a feeling of grateful appreciation for 
our education, and pride in the knowledge that we too 
are equipped to contribute our bit to the progress and 
well-bsing of mankind. 

Some of us may forget just a few things — an algebra 
method or a word in French, but none of us should forget 
the basic things we learned on this cruise — tolerance, a 
spirit of fair play, respect, and co-operation. Those are 
the souvenirs we should treasure most of all and keep 
always, for they are not material things that a lighted 
match can destroy, but rather they are a way of life that 
should find a permanent home in our hearts. 

I'll close my box of memories now. As we walk down 
the gangplank tomorrow morning, there '11 be a ribbon- 
tied scroll and a white tassel to add to it. But right 
now I'm going to join all my friends and fellow-pas- 
sengers on deck. We all can see from there the vast land 
that awaits us. 



Miriam P. Greene. 



GlaM, Poem 

By 

Barbara FitzGerald 

A few brief yesterdays have come and gone since Ave, 
With hearts determined and our courage high, 
Stood young and eager at the future's gate 
Seeking new horizons in the sky. 

We shall not falter, though the course be rough and steep, 
For those swift-helping hands, which in the past 
Guided us with skill and strength through all these years, 
Shall hold us to the course and keep us fast. 

Our thoughts go out in gratitude to those 
Who gave us courage and with patience near-divine 
Guided our steps aright. Time cannot soon erase 
These memories which 'round our hearts entwine. 

In the uncertain days ahead a challenge lies. 
And we with plans, our future shape and mold. 
"What lies ahead?" we wonder all the while, 
"What will the future bring; what does it hold?" 



To one, Fate grants success ; another, she denies. 
It matters little that the prize we win, 
If we can live with standards brave and true. 
For one's real worth is that which lies within. 



euu wdi 




Be it remembered that we, the Class of 1948, being 
of sound and disposing mind and memory, and wishing 
to direct in what manner our possessions shall be disposed 
of after our departure, do make and publish this our 
last will and testament. After the payment of our just 
debts, we bequeath and devise as follows: 

To Mr. Goodrich, our patient headmaster and friend, 
whose untiring efforts to help each pupil have made each 
one of us admire and respect him, we leave our sincere 
gratitude, and we wish him the greatest happiness in his 
future. 

To Miss Clement, who day after day has to listen to 
the ruination of her beloved language, we leave an air- 
plane in which she may fly to and from France whenever 
she gets the urge. 

To Mr. Sheehy, the man with all the bugs, and we 
mean his specimens, of course, we leave a finger-printing 
set which may be used to detect the whereabouts of his 
rulers, manuals and paper. 

To Miss Betts, our well-liked Latin teacher, who has 
the power to make even Latin seem interesting, we leave 
a class of students who can translate as easily as they can 
speak English.. 

To Mr. Huff, who has all but personally escorted each 
one to school each morning, we leave a trumpet which 
will sound each morning to wake up each pupil and lessen 
his duty. 

To Mr. Mosher, whose knowledge of English knows no 
bounds, we leave a class of Senior Tech boys who are 
quiet and gentlemanly. 

To Mr. Hood, whose tireless efforts have been pro- 
ducing a bigger and better year book every year, we leave 
an editorial staff which will prove as effective as that of 
our own class. 

To the Class of 1949, we leave the freedom, the little 
homework and sense of leadership that every senior dreams 
of in his junior year. 

We hereby nominate Miss Darmedy, Mr. Garrahan and 
Mr. Morang as co-executors of this, our last will and 
testament. In testimony whereof, we hereunto set our 
hand in the presence of three witnesses and declare this 
to be our last will this second day of June in the year one 
thousand nine hundred and forty-eight. 

Class of 1948 



CODICIL to Last Will and Testament 



BOWLER. MARY 

To Joanne Peiree, the girl who is always hidden behind 
some book, Ave leave a pair of horn-rimmed glasses to add 
to that intellectual appearance. 

To Dwight Heath, the most studious boy and the boy 
most likely to succeed, we leave this medal of achievement, 
which we know will be succeeded by many more in the 
future 

To Rita LeBlanc, the most popular girl and the girl 
with personality plus, we leave a bottle of Woolworth's 
best proof wine labeled ' ' Irresistible ' ', which will be one 
more addition to her magnetic personality. 

To Dave Bell, our most popular boy, who has been our 
class president for the last two years and who has had 
the courage at each assembly to stand and say "Stand. 
Salute, ' ' we bequeath a statue of speech achievement 
which is presented only to the best orator of the year. 

To Barb Perkins, our best looking girl, we leave a 
lasso which may be used if any one of her charms are 
dulled, which of course we doubt very much. 

To Eddie White, our best looking boy, we leave a 
mustache to add to his many charms "a debonair look", 
which will really give Clark Gable competition. 

To Miriam Greene, our best dressed girl, our most 
glamorous girl, and the girl most likely to succeed, we 
leave an outfit which will be an asset to her in whatever 
career she enters. 

To Doimie Bigham and Ronnie Goudy, our best- 
dressed boys, we leave a piece of neckwear which will 
sharpen up any outfit. 

To Esther Waldman, our brightest social light, we 
leave a red convertible, which we know will be a neces- 
sity to 'perform her many social duties. 

To Tony Bahros, our class Charlie Atlas, we leave a 
can of that well-known muscle food which has made 
Popeye famous. 

To Lorraine Bruneau, our most athletic girl, we leave 
a bottle of vitamins, which will give her that needed en- 
ergy and pep. 

To George Russo, our class wit, who is our perfect ex- 
ample of why teachers and mothers get gray, we leave 
a box of ' ' snickers. ' ' 

We hereby nominate Miss Russo, Mr. Pettinatti and 
Miss Nolan as co-executors of this, the codicil to our 
last will and testament. 



Be it remembered that we, the Class of 1948, being of 
sound and disposing mind and memory, do make and 
publish this, the codicil to our last will and testament.

Assistant Coach of football Mr. Jack Fisher 
with a cherished Victory Ball. 



Waltham's new coach of football comes to us with a 
fine record of past athletic achievements in both football 
and basketball. He was born in Everett, Massachusetts, 
in 1908, and attended Everett High School where he was 
an all-round athlete. His senior year was highlighted by 
his football team 's becoming the State Champions with no 
defeats, and his basketball team participated in the 
National Tournament with an 18-0 record before they 
were defeated. Jack Fisher was also outstanding in bas- 
ketball and hockey. 

After receiving his diploma he entered Fordham Uni- 
versity, where he gained nationwide recognition as a 
quarterback in football. During his three years of college 
football, the team suffered defeat only twice, and through 
his brilliant playing Fordham went undefeated during 
his Sophomore year. As second baseman and captain of 
a great Fordham baseball team he led them to the Eastern 
Championship in his Senior year with a one loss record 
of 15 - 1. 

The very day he graduated from Fordham in 1932, he 
placed his signature on a New York Giants baseball con- 
tract. He remained with the Giants for only a year. The 
next year he played for Lowell in the New England 



Baseball League. In the fall he became backfield coach 
of Canisius, where he coached for one year. He then be- 
came head coach of all sports at Bridgton Academy 
between 1934 - 1938, where he coached two undefeated 
football teams. Between the years of 1938 - 1943 he 
coached at Edward Little High School in Auburn, Maine. 
In 1941 both his football and basketball teams won the 
State Championship. The basketball team was invited 
to the New England Tournament and also to the Glens 
Falls Tourney in New York. 

Mr. Fisher during 1943 - 46, left his sports to serve 
in the United States Navy as a Lieutenant. Upon re- 
ceiving his discharge he accepted the position of football 
and basketball coach at Manlius Military School, where 
h? coached for one year. During that year his football 
team was untied and undefeated, while the basketball 
team ended the season with a won and lost record of 
14-4, compiled against many Freshman teams of top 
colleges. 

Finally in the year 1947, Jack Fisher came to Waltham 
as assistant coach to Jack Leary. We are proud to have 
a man so talented and capable, training our athletes on 
the gridiron.

"Independent 
-{-Tournament 

With only two veteranr, Captain Tony Bahros and 
Wal'er Bartlett, returning f-om their 1947 Tech Tourney 
finalist team, Coach Quirn began the tedious job of re- 
building his basketball team for a long and hard season 
in December. Dipping into his varsity reserves and jayve? 
talent, Coach Quinn brought up Chet Muise, "Whizzer" 
White, James Morse, Ken Cormier and Sophomores Joe 
Arsenault and Vin (Bugs) Florio as Ins starting varsity 
material. Although lacking in hsight, as usual, this team 
went beyond all expectations After taking its initial 
start by defeating Belmont 26 - 25, a team that was To 
become Class B. champions, it lost to a usual strong 
Somerville team and also its first league game to lowly 
Cambridge Latin team. It was from here on that Wal- 
Iham started to pick up. It went on to win the next ten 
contests and capture the Suburban crown, and a bid to 
play in the Eastern Massachusetts tourney. In the tour- 
ney in the first round Waltham eliminated a stronj 
Salem elub, which sports writers tabbed as (he "Dark 
Horse" of the tourney and one of the best teams arounu. 
They won by a score of 36-19. Waltham Ih mi suc- 
cumbed to a great Durfee team in the semi-finals by I 
point margin, 36 - 35 in a double overtime sudden death 
period. This game was said to be one of the moat 
thrilling games ever played in the Tournamenl since 
it had begun. This team also took the measures of arch 
rival Newton twice, and defeated Somervills for the firsi 
time in five years. 

Although lacking in height, Waltham had the spiril 
and determination which is a success to any ball (dub. 
Ken Cormier, Captain Tony Bahros and Chel Muise de 
pari this .June and will be sorely missed, Cormier and 

Bahros for their rebound work ami Chef Muise tor his 

deadly set shooting. But coming back are Captain Walter 

Bartlett, high scorer and owner of two Waltliam scoring 

records, the ever-dependable "Dick" White, talented Joe 
Arsenault, .Jim Morse, Vin Fh.rir,, Joe Terrasi, and Don 
Baldaro, which gives us something to look forward to.

Waltham began its season by losing the first four 
games it played. Three of these games were lost by the 
score of 2 to 1 with Waltham on the short end of the 
score. The other game was a 3 to whitewashing by 
Framingham. After these four games Waltham was not 
headed again, although it was tied twice. 

It seems that Waltham 's reason for having such a poor 
season was its lack of scoring punch. Only its superb 
defensive play kept the Crimson array from a more lowly 
position. 

All season long it was the brilliant play of Metz, 
Bill McKenna, and Charlie (Chuck) Roche, Waltham 's 
shut-out king, that kept Waltham in the game. Although 
Waltham 's season was not the best, it was the only team 
to score a victory over Watertown. It was in this game 
that Gus Carlson, a victim of polio only last September, 
not only tied the game but also smashed in one of his 



rebounds for the winning goal. Waltham also upset 
Walpole by tying them 1 to 1 to knock them from the 
top of the heap. 

Only one member of the team made the first team Bay 
State All-Stars, and that was Dave Bell. For the first four 
games Bell centered the first line, but was then shifted to 
defense. But no matter what position lie played he was 
outstanding. Maybe it was due to this shift and others 
made by Coach W. Brinn that helped the sextet to remain 
undefeated for the last six games. Metz, McKenna, Lefort 
and Roche made the Second team Bay State All-Stars. 
Although this year was not too much of a. success, Mr. 
Brinn has a promising group of sophomores coming 
up and a veteran goalie. So better luck to the future 
pucksters to play on Waltham 's Sextets.

This is another year, another graduating class, and 
another Mirror. 

The year, as a whole, from the political viewpoint, has 
been none too good with the threat of war again looming 
before a battle-tensed, war -weary, peace-seeking people. 

Those are the conditions in which the ninety-ninth 
class of Waltham High takes diploma in hand to face 
whatever life may hold. 

With every graduating class, there has been a symbol 
and a souvenir of that Commencement Day. It is the 
Mirror year book. This year, we honestly believe that it 
is better than ever — an issue of which every student may 
be proud. 

The Mirror just doesn't happen. It takes the hard 
work, effort, and cooperation of many people who will at 
least verbally get their orchids here and now. 



To Mr. Mosher, our literary advisor, whose assistance 
has been invaluable to us in countless ways, goes the 
gratitude of us all. 

We extend our hearty thanks to Mr. Hood for his con- 
scientious efforts on behalf of the betterment of the 
Mirror as both the faculty manager of the business and 
photography staffs. 

To Mr. Perkins, for his fine photographic contributions, 
and especially to Miss Eusso for her splendid art layouts 
and her many extra hours spent improving our Mirror, 
we give our very sincere appreciation. 

Our thanks also to Miss Grover, who supervised the 
typing of the manuscripts and the multigraphing of the 
many forms used. 

We are deeply indebted to the News-Tribune, various 
contributors, and our entire staff, as well as the un- 
heralded Eoom Agents, as follows:
